Gold Sovereign Coin (Elizabeth II Decimal) Information

Queen Elizabeth II Decimal Sovereign containing 7.98 grams of 22ct gold. As always, the reverse of the coin features Benedetto Pistrucci's design of St. George and the Dragon, while the obverse displays the second portrait of The Queen:

The Machin Portrait, 1968
Sculptor Arnold Machin, born in Stoke-on-Trent, England in 1911 was chosen to produce the second definitive portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Although the effigy was commissioned in 1968, no Sovereigns featuring the new design were produced until 1974. John Betjeman described the portait as "racy", but Machin was keen "to produce a design with charm and dignity and yet without sentimentality."
